Queen’s Baton Relay Beyond-Metro

Event Management

The Queen’s Baton Relay, similar to the Olympic Torch Relay, is a relay around the world held prior to the beginning of the Commonwealth Games. The Baton carries a message from the Head of the Commonwealth, currently Queen Elizabeth II. The Relay traditionally begins at Buckingham Palace in London as a part of the city’s Commonwealth Day festivities. The Queen entrusts the baton to the first relay runner. At the Opening Ceremony of the Games, the final relay runner hands the baton back to the Queen or her representative, who reads the message aloud to officially open the Games.
In 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, the Relay passed through Madhya Pradesh State for 5 days. The State’s sports ministry organized welcome events for the relay, which were all conceived, designed and executed by Ascent.
